Using Vista boot loader instead of GRUB
OK, so I had Windows Vista on a drive, and then installed Ubuntu Jaunty on another drive. When I did that, grub took over. I had many problems the first time and grub wouldn't load, it gave me an error 15. I fixed it with SuperGrub, but it broke my RAID (which didn't have any OS). I eventually got everything fixed up, and grub was working great.
Anyway, what happened now is I installed Windows 7 and got rid of Vista. When I did that, I guess Windows wrote over the MBR with its own bootloader and so I'm not able to boot into linux anymore. So, to be honest I couldn't care less about grub, and I don't want to run into the trouble of breaking my RAID again (actually I tried to install grub and this time got an error 17 so I used the Windows 7 CD to fix the MBR).
Now here is my question (sorry for that long intro haha), is it possible to get a grub-like interface when booting up so that I can choose whether to boot into Windows or Ubuntu? If so, how?
Basically, you know when you get to choose whether to boot into safe-mode etc... I want that but with Ubuntu as an option. Even if thats not possible, could you explain how to boot into Linux without installing grub?
